Pilatus hike, Anticlockwise helical route

Activity: Hiking, level T2
Min/max altitude: 440 m / 2118 m
Elevation gain / loss: 1680 m

Description:
Let's go for a beautifull hiking day! We'll meet at the Luzern Hauptbanhof and take the train to Alpnachstadt at 10:42. People who wish to go on their own can meet us there at 11:00.
We'll take the southern hiking path to the top of the magestic Mount Pilatus, were we'll have a little time to relax and enjoy the stunning view on the lake and surroundings of Luzern. Refilled of energy we'll go down the north-west face, heading back to Alpnachstadt.

Please note that although it's no technical hike, you should be well equiped, wear good hiking shoes and be aware of mountain risks and changing weather conditions. Everyone is responsible for his own security.
Last but not least, bring your smile, your good mood ... and chocolate :D

    I`d love to join as well! Where in Hauptbanhof is the meeting point and what time are you meeting since the train leaves at 10:42?

    • Kat

      Just a note even though I cannot join. Pay attention to when the last car to back down is because it's not very late and once I almost missed the last one and that would have been a very long walk back.....especially since you are starting so late for the upward climb.

      June 7, 2014

    • Caroline

      Thanks for the advice Kat! Well I checked it all, it should be fine. Plus we've got a Pilatus specialist with us to lead the way :) Normally this hiking day includes a walking back down but for those who don't feel like it, trains are on until 17:45. Hope to see you for some other hike ;) Cheers.
